Last time Russia declined to use its air defense systems to shoot down US Tomahawk missiles in Syria. I think this time they'll take shots. Standoff air-launched or sea-launched missiles pose little risk of US casualties, but the escalation risk is higher.

Russia's "nyet" for continuing the UN investigation that would attribute responsibility for Syrian chemical attacks has meant "da" (yes) to more such attacks. pic.twitter.com/8ziU9CrwY1

Trump went off on this unhinged rant in what was supposed to be a War Cabinet meeting focused on the Syria/Iran-Russia crisis. Lives and our nation’s security subordinated to Trump’s self-interest vs his own DOJ and his own US Atty for SDNY. Grotesque. https://t.co/YinyiMO5zJ

An unhinged, impulsive conspiracy theorist who started off today's military strategy meeting by attacking his own Attorney General, the FBI, and mused about firing the Special Counsel is now about to decide whether—and how—to bomb Syria. What could go wrong?

Re: Michael Cohen search. Attorney-client privilege is voided in an investigation when you use that privilege to further a crime or fraud.

Trump reportedly puts Lou Dobbs on speakerphone for Oval Office meetings.
Lou Dobbs just tweeted out a quote from one of his guests that Mueller and co. all "deserve to be fired." https://t.co/4Ci5xb5Qnc

so farmers who voted for Trump **while he campaigned promising to wage a trade war** are suddenly concerned about Trump's trade war; https://t.co/2eW8uOylyq

Brutal headlines in Midwest papers on trade for @realDonaldTrump, including @qctimes: "Iowans got conned." Asked about this today, Trump says this of farmers: "They understand that they are dong this for the country and we will make it up to them."

Is there reporting on whether most farmers view it as their patriotic duty to take the L and stand by Dear Leader Trump as his trade war with China devastates their family finances?
